Jennifer Smith received her Ph.D. in Hispanic Literature from Indiana University. Her main area of research is late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Spanish literature and culture, and especially the Galician writer Emilia Pardo Bazán. She is currently working on a monograph (Women, Mysticism, and Hysteria in Fin-de-siècle Spain) and has an edited volume (Modern Spanish Women as Agents of Change: Essays in Honor of Maryellen Bieder) under review with Bucknell University Press. In addition to a co-edited volume titled Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Nation in Fin-de-Siècle Spanish Literature and Culture (Routledge, 2017) and a bilingual edition of Emilia Pardo Bazán's Insolación (Cervantes & Co., 2011), Professor Smith has published articles in journals such as Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, Anales de la Literatura Española Contemporánea, and Anales Galdosianos.
